Carmen by Compañía Nacional de Danza in Sacramento

Spanish Compañía Nacional de Danza presents “Carmen” by choreographer Johan Inger, a reimagined version of Georges Bizet’s masterwork.

Founded in 1979, Compañía Nacional de Danza returns to the Mondavi Center with a work that is a statement of its compelling artistic direction. Johan Inger’s Carmen is a retelling of mythic and universal elements of passion and violence. Debuting in 2015, and winning the coveted Benois de la Danse prize for choreography in 2016, this contemporary Carmen tells the tale through the eyes of a child, with its heroine a courageous and modern woman, the mountains of Ronda reimagined as poor suburbs, the military now senior executives and the bullfighter recast as a movie star.
